New Honda Pilot Farmington Hills

The Modern Family SUV Gets a Refreshing Makeover

It hasn't been long since Honda's full-size SUV saw a significant redesign, but that doesn't mean there's room for improvement. The 2019 Honda Pilot gets some light cosmetic touch ups, a slew of new technology options, and a few other helpful features. It's another step closer to perfecting a winning formula among family-friendly SUVs.

2019 Honda Pilot Exterior

Things aren't totally different from the outside. At first glance, you may not notice any difference from the outgoing 2018 model. However, at closer inspection, you'll spot some subtle adjustments. The front fascia has been updated with a refreshed grille, losing the three-bar chrome treatment and adding smaller turn signals. LED headlights and LED-accented taillights remain.

2019 Honda Pilot Interior

Thanks to the available 8-inch display audio touchscreen and a rear entertainment system, everyone in the family can find their own entertainment solutions on long road trips, helping to keep the peace. These rear entertainment screens see a size increase with the 2019 model year. With three rows of seating, you're sure to appreciate the One-Touch 2nd-Row seats that move forward at the touch of a button -- allowing easy access to the third-row seating.

When you fold down the third-row and second-row seats, you'll have a spacious 109 cubic feet of cargo capacity to fill. Need to balance passengers and cargo? Both the second and third-row seats feature a 60/40 split, so you can fit both the kids and their gear.

New for 2019 is a redesigned steering wheel with a range of control functions and a physical volume control knob that replaces the old touch-screen controls.

2019 Honda Pilot Technology

Technology is where the most significant upgrades arrive for the 2019 Pilot.

One of the most exciting new features for the 2019 Pilot is a revamped infotainment system that now offers 4G WiFi connectivity. You and your passengers can connect devices with ease while rolling down the road -- you won't have to wait for arrival to access Wi-Fi. Drivers and up-front passengers can enjoy the new CabinTalk feature, which projects your voice to rear passengers throughout the cabin.

The popular HondaSensing actives safety technology suite is now standard for the 2019 model year. That means every 2019 Pilot comes with an impressive list of safety features:

  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Automated Emergency Braking
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

2019 Honda Pilot Performance

The 2018 Honda Pilot is motivated by a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that comes married to a six-speed automatic transmission to produce 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque -- more than enough to move the SUV and its occupants down the road in style. A nine-speed automatic transmission is available for Touring and Elite trims, and available all-wheel drive can add handling and grip confidence to any trim level. 2019 Honda Pilot Trim Levels

The Honda Pilot starts off with an LX trim, and adds EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims that add amenities and options to allow you to practically customize your SUV to suit your whims and needs.

2019 Honda Pilot vs. 2018 Toyota Highlander

Tired of hearing bickering from the backseat of a crowded, two-row vehicle? Looking for a new, family-friendly model that offers power, reliability, comfort, and room for everyone to have their own space? Check out the 2019 Honda Pilot SUV we have here at Suburban Honda.

The 2019 Honda Pilot has three rows of seating that can accommodate up to eight people. Plus, it has all of the latest safety and creature comfort features available that Michigan drivers look for in a new vehicle. But, of course, it's not the only three-row SUV available in the Farmington Hills area.

While the 2019 Honda Pilot is a ringer in its class, it still has its competitors. Take the 2018 Toyota Highlander, for example. It's similar in size, capability, and more to the 2019 Pilot. To help you make the best decision, we've taken the time to break down a few key differences between the two:

  • Size and cargo space. The 2019 Honda Pilot measures 196.5 inches long, while the Toyota Highlander is 192.5 inches long. What this difference translates to for you is more interior room, starting with cargo storage. With all rear seats folded down, the 2019 Pilot offers a staggering 109 cubic feet of cargo space. The Highlander lags behind with just 83.7 cubic feet.
  • Engine power. The last thing you want in a family vehicle is a car that's underpowered and underperforms when travelling. With a standard V6 engine rated for 280 horsepower, you won't have to worry about that with the 2019 Honda Pilot. However, the Toyota Highlander standard engine might prove a problem, since it's only a 185-horsepower four-cylinder.
  • Passenger space. Although similar in a lot of ways on the inside, the 2018 Honda Pilot offers more passenger room than the Toyota Highlander, especially way back in the third row. Back row accommodations in the 2018 Toyota Highlander are a tight fit, best suited for children. However, the 2018 Honda Pilot third row is comfortable and offers a little more room, so that even adults can sit in the back with ease and comfort.

Ready to see what the 2019 Honda Pilot can do for you and your family? Stop by and visit us here at Suburban Honda. We'll break down the 2019 Pilot further to help you understand the wealth of features and benefits found in this popular SUV. If you're ready to get behind the wheel, we can take you out for a test drive.

2019 Honda Pilot vs. the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

The Honda Pilot has long been a favorite for our Suburban Honda customers who are looking for a roomy, three-row SUV for their families. No wonder, too. With its Honda quality and innovation built into every model, the 2019 Honda Pilot is a great option for Michigan families who need room and power.

But, three-row SUVs are popular, and many other carmakers make similarly-sized models. One newcomer to the race, the Volkswagen Atlas, made its debut in 2018. Despite all that this new model has to offer, we think the 2019 Honda Pilot gives a little more. Read on to see all the ways we've uncovered that make the 2019 Honda Pilot a great choice over the new Volkswagen Atlas.

  • Standard power. With the 2019 Honda Pilot, performance and responsiveness are always where you want it, thanks to the standard engine. Under the hood, you'll find a 280-horsepower V6 with available all-wheel drive. The 2018 Atlas lags behind with its standard four-cylinder engine producing just 235-horsepower. To get more power, or even all-wheel drive, you have to opt for a different engine. the available V6 is rated for 276 horsepower, placing it yet again behind the 2019 Pilot in power.
    • Passenger room. The 2019 Honda Pilot offers a little bit more room for your passengers than the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, with more legroom and headroom, especially in the backseat. There are more seats in the 2019 Pilot, too. Honda's SUV comes standard with eight seats, while the Atlas tops out at seven seats.
    • Safety features. Drivers around Michigan are sure to question how this family-friendly SUV keeps their passengers safe. To ensure that every vehicle lives up to safety expectations, Honda equips the 2019 Pilot with standard Honda Safety Sense. This suite of technologies includes features like Collision Mitigation Braking System and Lane Keeping Assist System. To get similar features in the Atlas, you'll have to opt into higher trim levels.

    If it's time for your family to spread out into three rows of comfortable seating, stop by and visit us soon at Suburban Honda. Let us show you everything about the 2019 Honda Pilot that makes it a family SUV worth considering.
